Kith reprises partnerships with heritage sportswear brand Russell Athletic and the iconic fashion publication Vogue to create a tri-branded collection that channels a retro collegiate inspiration. The result is a 24-piece collection comprised of varsity jackets, sweatsuits, and tees that pay homage to Kith’s flagship locations – SoHo, Brooklyn, Miami, and Los Angeles – aptly titled “Love Thy City”.

Each location receives its own color palette, reminiscent of college team colors. Styles include collaborative Made In USA varsity jackets created in partnership with Golden Bear which are crafted from virgin wool and feature 3D Vogue embroidery on the chest, chainstitch detailing on the sleeves and back, Kith varsity applique on the back, and a Kith x Russell Athletic on the left sleeve. The hoodies, crewnecks, and sweatpants are all made from premium 20 oz 450 GSM 100% cotton brushback fleece. The fit is inspired by retro Russell silhouettes, similar to Kith and Russell’s last collaboration. Rounding out the collection are long sleeve and short sleeve tees, each featuring a different logo application.

Kith x Russell Athletic x Vogue releases Friday, November 8, at all Kith shops and at 11AM EST on Kith.com.
